Getting wild in the library with the zoo man

Published 10:12 am Friday, July 24, 2015

For his 29th consecutive year, Brent “Zoo Man” Mielke brought some of his animals to Albert Lea Public Library.

During his visit Thursday, the Zoo Man brought with him a bearded dragon, a corn snake, a giant blue-tongued skink and a royal python.

In conjunction with closing out the Summer Reading Program at the children’s library, Mielke urged the children in attendance to check out books and read about the different animals he brought with him.
